The theme of the SCAR Open Science Conference, “Antarctica in a Changing World,” reflects not only the significance of ongoing changes in Antarctica and their impact on the Earth System, but also symbolizes the interconnections of global earth system processes. The 2022 version of the biennial science conference provides a platform for the Antarctic science community to share the latest outcomes of Antarctic research and foster new paradigms of collaborative research as our planet witnesses accelerating climate change that is often first expressed in the cryosphere, especially in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.
The SCAR Open Science Conference of 2022 will feature a comprehensive schedule of meetings,
symposia, virtual side events and social activities, daily plenary lectures and poster sessions in an
innovative online format (for details see Page 2). All of the events will be designed to facilitate
interactions and collaboration among researchers in different time zones across the globe.
